I Am ZaZa Ali - Mother, Teacher, Author, Radio Host, Activist, Business Woman and Servant of God. For the last 7 years I have dedicated my life to the edification of Black people, all over the world but particularly in America. For 3 years, starting in 2008, I voluntarily worked with teenagers in a California detention center, teaching workshops on life skills and overcoming adversity. During the summer of 2016 I worked with teens at the Boys and Girls Club in Oakland, CA. 

For nearly two years, from 2014 - 2015, I traveled across the US teaching and learning from our people, while simultaneously serving as co-host on a radio platform dedicated to raising the consciousness of the masses. I am presently mentoring - directly and indirectly - girls and young women around the world. I pride myself on using all of my platforms to teach, reach and elevate our young people. 

I’ve started this fundraising campaign to help me transition into this new phase of my work. The plan is to move forward with my company “Al Khemi Sanctuaries”, to provide “Nature and Knowledge” based retreats for our youth. I am asking for your support to help me in my mission to revitalize our children. Your donations will go directly towards our first youth retreat, which will sponsor 20 young black teenagers out of Oakland, CA age 13-19. We’ve planned a 4 day getaway, all expenses paid, to Lake Tahoe, CA for July,  2017. The balance of your donations will be used for future retreats that will serve the same purpose. We are looking to link up with local organizations in Atlanta (and other cities) who work with at risk youth,  using the Lake Tahoe retreat as a blueprint for what’s to come. 

Business Itinerary and list of expenditures available upon request 

I appreciate the love and support. 

Peace and Love, 

ZaZa Ali

Peace and Love to each of you for embracing my vision and contributing to help me make it happen! I'm so excited about this next phase of my work... I've included some information from the itinerary to give a broader perspective on what it will take to give these retreats life. Eventually, once we're off the ground and running, the goal is to market our services to community organizations and middle / high schools that service children who have the greatest need. By aiding in our goals, you have taken a step towards building an institution centered around building the minds and hearts of our youth. We honor and appreciate you!! ZaZa Ali :-)
